Yet another reason we love Freedom Park [Patricia & Devin]

One Saturday morning, Devin suggested we take a walk through Freedom Park in Charlotte before heading to a friend’s graduation party. We go there a lot—it’s the spot where Devin asked me to be his girlfriend—so I didn’t think anything of it. It was a beautiful day and we had a great time, just sitting, chatting, and de-stressing.

We walked around for a little while and eventually made our way to a path without a lot of people. At first, I didn’t realize Devin wasn’t standing beside me anymore. Then I turned around to find him on one knee with a ring box in his hands. I completely freaked out, as he took my hands and asked if I would do him the honor of marrying him. I immediately said yes.

Then we headed to Zebra in SouthPark, one of the best restaurants I’ve ever been to. Afterward, we planned to head to my friend’s graduation party, but Devin asked if we could stop by the apartment first to grab a few things. I agreed, and when I opened the door, decorations and 40 of my closest friends and family greeted me, cheering. —As told by Patricia
